B: A = 0, B =1, C = 0
C: A = 1, B = 0, C = 0
D: A = 1, B = 1, C = 0
Ans: A
Solution:
The resultant boolean expression of the above logic circuit is given by,
Y = (A+B).C
Using the inputs given in the options,
If A = 0, B = 0,C = 0, we have
Y = (0+0).0
i.e., Y = 0
If A = 1, B = 1, C = 0, then we have
Y = (1+1).0
i.e., Y = 1.0 = 0
If A = 1, B = 0, C = 1, then
Y = (1+0).1
i.e., Y = 1.1 = 1
If A = 0, B = 1, C = 0, then
Y = (0+1).0
i.e., Y = 1.0
Y = 0
Therefore, output Y = 1 only when inputs A = 1, B = 0 and C = 1.
